This 1956 built XK140 DHC is beautiful both to look at and to drive - it has its original OVERDRIVE and C-TYPE CYLINDER HEAD. Key points:

1. AN EXTENSIVE RESTORATION HAS JUST BEEN COMPLETED by a high quality classic Jaguar specialist using quality parts. Although it was NOT a body-off, bare-metal restoration, the chassis is very sound and the intention was to keep the car as original as possible.

2. IT IS A FULLY MATCHING NUMBERS CAR i.e. chassis, body, engine block, engine head, gearbox - Jaguar Heritage Certificate included.

3. EXCELLENT BODY FINISH - not perfect but very good - BRITISH RACING GREEN with black interior and beige hood.

4. GOOD DOOR GAPS with a straight body and no play in the door hinges.

5. Only 3 PREVIOUS OWNERS from new.

6. KNOWN HISTORY - Heritage Certificate shows purchased new (and then owned for many years) by Eric Stroh, owner of well known American Stroh beer company (the Jaguar Heritage Certificate and an email from Eric Strohs daughter both confirm this).

7. ORIGINAL 1956 UK REGISTRATION (when Eric Stroh used it here before exporting to USA) has been restored.

8. THERE ARE SOME ITEMS YET TO COMPLETE - see below. For this reason the price has recently been reduced from £139,000 to £118,000 which I believe to be a highly realistic figure.


Restoration to date includes: -

Engine rebuilt to as new.
Dynamo replaced with new alternator (which looks like a dynamo).
Completely rewired with new wiring loom.
All mechanics overhauled and replaced with identical parts where necessary.
New radial tyres on restored original wheels.
Chrome all round is perfect.
Original windscreen has no scratches.
Existing paintwork flatted and polished, small dent fixed etc.
